MIXED BAG

Hi all, hope that you are all ok and feeling tickety boo but if not I hope that you feel better soon.  It is not nice being unwell at any time of the year but with the dark mornings and nights it seems to make things feel worse, I for one am not recovering as quickly as I would like.

Today I have not one, not two but three cards to share with you and enter into some challenges, 
My first card is a reminder that 
is still open until the end of the month it is anything goes as long as it is Christmas related
I have gone for a simple design using some Papermania spotty paper a spotted embossing folder, Memory Box Die Cut, punched snowflakes, Die Cut Poinsettia and some ribbon. I think this will be a popular style for me to use on a lot of my Christmas cards this year as I will be able to use up a lot of my beautiful Christmas card stock that I have had for a few years.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:


My second card features one of my older beloved Tilda stamps I have used an Autumnal colour theme I stamped her with Momento Tuxedo ink then coloured her with both Graph It Markers and Copics, I doodled the leaves used my corner punch and mounted her onto red mirror card, the papers are a mixture from my bit box I also added some buttons that I found while rooting around in my stash.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


My third and final card features an Elisabeth Bell stamp that I have had for quite a long time, I have coloured her with Copics and Graph it Markers then mounted her onto both pink and black card, the papers are LOTV, I also added a stamped sentiment, pink spotty ribbon, glitter, hat pin with gems and pearls, butterflies, punched hearts, lace and Royal lace doily.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


Many, many thanks for coming to visit I hope that you like my selection of cards and maybe found just a little bit of inspiration, comments are always appreciated and mean a lot to me thank you.
see you soon.

What a splendid array of cards Lorraine, the Autumnal one is perfect for our theme with the lovely warm colours, the image on the third is so pretty but the design and colours of the first one have to be my favourite, so classic and elegant. Many thanks for joining in at Penny Black and More challenge.

Lovely card, I'm still learning on the copic markers and this is really great. (I haven't tried blue jeans yet) The heart in this image makes me think of my sister-in-law who just passed away from breast cancer. She had 3 daughters who I know are holding her close to their hearts. (me too, she was a great person and I miss her also) Thank you for joining us at Creative Card Crews ribbon challenge. Vicki DT
